Building Self-Esteem in Children
  • Parental Workshop
  • 27th November 2015

  • What we want is Western Science coupled with
    Vedanta, Brahmacharya as the guiding motto, also
    Shraddha and faith in one's own Self.

The Teaching Of Innocence SEVEN PRINCIPLES
  1. Everything is possible
  2. If you want to get something, give it.
  3. When you make a choice, you change the future.
  4. Dont say no, go with the flow.
  5. Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed.
  6. Enjoy the journey.
  7. You are here for a reason.

Learning and Knowledge
  • Learning what to Learn V/s Learning How to learn
  • Knowledge - Theoretical - Information based -
  • Knowledge - Exponential - Experiential - Elevates
    the mind to higher level. One never forgets -
    like eating a Vanilla Ice cream or Alphanso mango
    or chocolate
  • Comparison between the two concepts of knowledge.
  • We may study about the different classification
    and types of Mango Trees, but we would not
    experience how would it tastes unless we eat it.

What is Self-Esteem?
  • How a child feels about him/herself
  • How s/he feels accepted by others
  • Feeling loveable
  • Feeling capable

Learning How To Learn? Education is the
manifestation of the perfection already in man.
No knowledge comes from outside
  • - Swami Vivekananda

  • That system which aims at educating our boys in
    the same manner as that of the man who battered
    his ass, being advised that it could thereby be
    turned into horse, should be abolished.

  • Owing to undue domination exercised by the
    parents, our boys do not get free scope of
  • - Swami Vivekananda

  • You cannot teach a child any more than you can
    grow a plant. The plant develops its own nature.
    The child also teaches itself. But you can help
    it to go forward in its own way
  • - Swami Vivekananda

The 5 Areas of Self Esteem

    decision-making, particularly as it concerns

  • Teach/prompt your child to express their feelings
    through words

  • Be available to them and validate their feelings
    by restating what theyve said
  • Be aware that listening/validating their feelings
    can be enough of a response

Ways to Build Self-Esteem and Confidence
  • 9. Be A Positive Mirror
  • How your child perceives him/herself largely
    depends upon how you perceive him/her
  • Value them for who they are and not just how they
  • Tell children what they can do instead of what
    not to do

Be a good role model for self-esteem avoid
putting yourself down, or beating yourself up if
you make a mistake send a message that its okay
not to be perfect
Ways to Build Self-Esteem and Confidence
  • 10. Play with Your Child
  • Play time gives the message you are worth my
    time and you are valuable

    attention longer
  • Give him/her your undivided attention

  • Dont fall into the trap of the permissive parent

    together and separate time (especially important
    for parents of an only child)
  • Avoid exclusive child- centred decision-making
  • Show respect for the authority figures in your
    childs world.

Ways to Build Self-Esteem and Confidence
  • 12. Be Spontaneous and Affectionate
  • Give hugs and praise frequently
  • Surprise them for no reason in particular
  • Be playful and genuine

  • Helping children develop self-esteem is a matter
    of helping them gather evidence that they are
    competent, capable, successful right now and
    being loved by others. Tell them the most
    important friend is God, loves you, through your
    Mother, Father, Brother, Sister Friends.

When children are allowed to do things for
themselves, they feel proud and competent.
How would you handle the following situations
  • Sham says, I cant do math. Im stupid!
  • Seema tells you that someone in her class said
    her butterfly project was ugly.
  • John tells you he doesnt have any friends
    because all the boys in his class play soccer and
    he doesnt know how.

Ways to Build Self-Esteem
  • Love your children for who they are
  • Be grateful to God and keep telling yourself that
    your children are Gods gift to you
  • See, encourage, and not seek your childs talents
  • Give your children importance
  • Give responsibility
  • Set rules and consequences
  • Establish Spirituality practice to set routines
  • Guide monitor your childs friends
  • Allow children to express their feelings
  • Be a positive mirror
  • Play with your child
  • Be spontaneous and affectionate

  • If you do not allow one to become a lion, one
    will become a fox.
  • -Swami Vivekananda

If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again
  • If I had my child to raise all over again, I'd
    build self-esteem first,
  • and the house later. I'd finger-paint more,
  • and point the finger less. I would do less
  • and more connecting. I'd take my eyes off my
  • and watch with my eyes. I would care to know less
  • and know to care more.
  • I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.

I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play. I
would run through more fields and gaze at more
stars. I'd do more hugging and less tugging. I'd
see the oak tree in the acorn more often. I would
be firm less often, and affirm much more. I'd
model less about the love of power, And more
about the power of Love.

21st Century Does Belong to India
  • But who are these Indians who are going to make
    India number one in the globe, is it you and me?
  • A piece of steel can be converted into a nail for
    the concrete wall of our home. That cost may be
    of 10 rupees? It could also be converted into a
    spring for Rolex watch which could cost maybe
    60,000 rupees.
  • Your child is a gift from God, what you make out
    of him is your gift back to God.
